|Bio and Links|
My name is Rita June Collvins Mayfield. I was born February 20, 1942 in Jackson County, Oklahoma. I married Vernon Roy Mayfield on April 16, 1971. My primary hobbies are gardening, oil painting, genealogy and of course cemeteries. There is something comforting about strolling through the cemetery and reading the stones. I have recently moved to Cordell, Oklahoma, but have lived in Oklahoma most of my life. Once an Okie, always an Okie. I am slowly trying to get all my family memorialized here. My virtual cemeteries represent my family, unless otherwise noted. I am going to make them public once again, and hope I can leave them without the misuse that occurred previously.|
If I have a memorial that is anyone in your family, and is unrelated to me or my husband, I will be glad to hand it over to you as I don't adhere to the 4 generation only guideline, just contact me. I count it a joy and a job well done if I am able to pass on your loved one to you. It is my number two reason for doing this, second only to wishing to save all the old and battered stones from being lost forever. If you find errors on any of the information on my memorials, please get in touch with me with corrections. You are welcome to use my tombstone photos on your family files and family trees, just note where you got it.
Please don't post death certificates or census reports in the picture area on my memorials. They don't belong there and are detrimental to the looks of the memorial, plus it takes up room where photos could be placed.

Elvira was Hugh Kleiser's 2nd wife. His first was Ethel WIlhite, d/o Ola Wilhite & Mary Bryce. Ethel died shortly after Hugh Jr's birth. You can find Hugh Jrs death record on familysearch.org under Illinois Deaths and Stillbirths, 1916-1947

Hi there! I was wondering what your source is for Robert Tate Simpson's parents. I have been searching and haven't been able to find anything. Any help you can give would be appreciated! He was my great-great grandfather.

Rita, please forgive me for my tardiness in thanking you for these transfer. I really appreciate you very much. I would also like to ask your permission to use your photos on my family tree, if that would be ok with you? Again, many thanks and blessings. Sarah

I think once the genealogy bug bites you, you're in it for life. :) Online access has really revolutionized the information process, hasn't it? So many records and so much information right at your fingertips where before you'd have to write or physically visit everywhere. It's definitely more cost effective as well. Glad you're doing well!
